Starfield players who are seeing poor performance on PC are likely experiencing that simply because they are in need of a hardware upgrade. This is according to director Todd Howard, who was asked by Bloomberg Technology’s Ed Ludlow this week as to why Microsoft and Bethesda Game Studios didn’t bother optimizing the game for PC. Howard stated that the studio actually did do that, clarifying that this is a next-gen game and that “you may need to upgrade your PC.”

Ed Ludlow: Why did you not optimize this game for PC?

Todd Howard: Uhhh…we did, it’s running great. It is a next-generation PC game. We really do push the technology, so you may need to upgrade your PC for this game, but it’s got a lot of great stuff going on and the fans are responding awesome.
